RATH'S Londis Plus pulled a peach from their deli counter when staff member Louise Lawlor was named Retail Staff Member of the Year at the Londis Retailing Excellence Awards 2012.
Louise, from Carlow town, has been working at Rath's on the Pollerton Road for the past 10 years and is deli supervisor.
She was nominated for the award by shop owners Willie and Bridget Rath and attended the awards in Killarney with her partner Keith Byrne.
'I had no idea that I had even been nominated until two weeks before,' said Louise. 'On the night I knew I was down to the final eight. It was a complete surprise to win!'
